Hoff, Bobbie Ann Howell, Eunkang Koh, Jack Malotte, Daniel Ogletree, Jeanne Voltura.

A rift in geologic terms is an area of the earth’s crust, that along which divergence is taking place, allowing a fault plane to intersect with the surface marking its path across the landscape, a crack, fissure, or a breakthrough. This exhibition is part of a series of exhibitions and events in conjunction with the Southern Graphic Council International Conference: Altered Landscapes, taking place in Las Vegas in April 4-6, 2018.
